Take a behind the scenes tour of Waller House, an iconic Melbourne property.

This exclusive tour is hosted by one of the National Trust’s Conservation Architects and provides visitors a unique opportunity to see conservation in action, as the National Trust develops a plan for preserving and enhancing Waller House into the future.

Designed for education groups, industry professionals or special interest groups, the tour is an opportunity to learn about the conservation processes and decisions required to open a house museum for this unique property, once the home and studio of artists Christian and Napier Waller. Visitors will also learn about the lives of the occupants, their circle of friends and associates, their art processes, and the details of the place that provide insights into an artist’s life and the art and design history of Melbourne.

Once a month we run two hosted tours on a Thursday. These exclusive experiences are limited to a capacity of 8 minimum and 12 maximum. Pre-bookings are essential via the form below. 

Please note Waller House is closed to the general public while conservation work is undertaken.
